Panic gripped passengers of a Bengaluru-bound IndiGo flight from Thiruvananthapuram after cabin crew noticed smoke emanating from a hand baggage, which was quickly put out with a fire extinguisher, the airline said on Monday.

The incident, which occurred on Saturday, has been reported to the aviation regulator – the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), it said.

“IndiGo crew operating flight 6E-445 from Thiruvananthapuram to Bengaluru noticed the smoke in the cabin. The crew quickly identified minor sparks coming from the hat-rack of seat 24RH and immediately informed the commander,” a spokesperson said in a statement to PTI.

The Airbus A320 aircraft, carrying 186 passengers and six crew, made a normal landing, an IndiGo spokesperson said.

Taking precautionary measures, the cabin crew, on priority basis, relocated all passengers from adjacent seats, airline said. Smoke coming out of a black laptop placed in the hand baggage was put out with a fire extinguisher.

The laptop was then transferred into a container filled with water in the lavatory, the airline said.
